Al and Tipper were in a skybox and Don Henley was walking around the field. Good Show.

Subject: Playin' into Terrapin- wow!
I was down on the field for this show and the thirty some minutes of music during Playing in the Band into Terrapin Station has stuck with me to this day. I remember thinking to myself, "did I eat something without knowing it?". And then I scanned the crowd around me and realized it wasn't just me, the band was indeed playing some mind melting tunes. I would love to have this on video, but maybe the memories in my mind are better to be left with.

Subject: 5 stars for Playin>Terrapin>Jam
There weren't many 5 star shows after 1977 (74?), IMHO, but through Space this was ready to go down as one. The first set smoked, especially Stranger and Bird Song. A very long and hot Aiko opened the second set. Even the Long Way that followed was on, though I can hardly stand that song. The meat of the show was definitely Playin>Terrapin, about 35 minutes of intense music made even more incredible by the visuals on the huge screens above the stage. Playin had some jamming that sounded almost bitonal, an epic by post-74 standards. The jam after Terrapin was a highlight as well - good thing they didn't just go into drums, because the post-Drums segment really brought the show down. I'm a bit biased, because due to circumstances I won't go into, I was exhausted by that time, and really felt it when they started into (I Wish It Were) The Last Time. Not to mention being pissed at not getting the Other One they teased the night before (and then played I Need a Geritol instead). So I didn't give Days nearly enough credit - a beautiful, sad song.

Subject: Playing > Terrapin
This is intense, folks. One of the hottest pairings of these two songs in the latter years, if not ever. 30 mins. Very nice Days, too. This blew away the other RFK show from that year, imo

Subject: My favorite ever (that I attended)
This was my second GD show ever, and remained my favorite through the end. Incredible Stranger opener, hot BEW, Playin>Terrapin>Drums is just totally amazing...Great Lazy River Road. Jerry ripped on WTGH, which I actually think is a pretty good song.

I had only really just started getting aquainted with their songs and was in the midst of a serious love affair with Terrapin...so it couldn't have been a better show for me at the time. I highly recommend downloading this one...proves that they could still throw down serious shit towards the end. I was stone cold sober at most of my pre-95 GD shows, and they just totally transported my mind with some killer music. This was the show that sealed the deal for me...Enjoy!

Oh, and it was a beautiful sunny day that day...don't recall it raining a single drop...though I do remeber some second set opening showers at the '94 and '95 RFK shows...with setlist to match...

Subject: nice!, but...
i never thought i wouldn't like bruce hornsby's contribution to the Dead, but that squeezebox at the end of the first set made me want to turn off the stereo and go back to studying for my contracts exam.
Great show otherwise, and I would LOVE to hear Garcia playing Walking on the Moon with Sting.

Strong opener lots of energy. Birdsong was played well. Solid second set but inferior to the previous night.

Subject: having been there
this was a great show, the only show dead show that i ever went to sober. The terrapin was so intense it gave me a flashback/anxiety attack. Thank u to whoever posted this show.

Subject: Spent
I was thanks to the night before, but this was a better show. Stranger>BEW was a nice opener. I remember Jerry playing Walking on the Moon with Sting. That was pretty cool. Birdsong was my highlight.

Subject: Great show
If I recall correctly, this was the rainy day, which mind you did not put a damper the experience. Every time I have been to RRK they have always done something special. Please enjoy!!! In addition, I am in the process of downloading this show, I am not grading this on the quality of this recording, and I am grading it on personal experience.

RFK STADIUM!! 6-26-93 my first of 9 shows. Bobby's voice is scratchy in this show because he was about to have surgery to remove polips from his throat. The terrapin is superb. bruce hornsby is a piano guest for the entire show. birdsong is beautiful.
Nothing was ever better than the RFK parking lot with the drum circles under the bridge. what memories!!
